A Case of Hypernatremia due to Esophageal Foreign Body
Won Bae Kim, Jung Hee Kang, Soo Kyung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(2):270-274.   Published online February 15, 1998
Hypertonic or hypernatremic dehydration, which is uncommon in pediatric patients beyond infancy, has a distinct pathophysiology that differentiates the clinical presentation and management from other forms of dehydration. Severe hypernatremia may precipitate central nervous system injury, seizures, intracerebral bleeding, retardation, and even death. Causes of hypernatremia include inadequate water intake, salt overload, extrarenal water loss, defective osmoregulation, and water loss...
A Case of Unusual (1q;21q) Translocation Down Syndrome Inherited from a t(1q;21q) Balanced Carrier Mother
Dong Hoon Yi, Jae Ock Park, Sang Mann Shin, You Kyoung Lee, Won Bae Kim, Won Bae Lee, Sung Sup Park, Han-Ik Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(8):1156-1161.   Published online August 15, 1997
Down syndrome is the most common autosomal syndrome in man. The incidence of trisomy 21 due to translocation is about 3.5-5%. Translocations are usually centric fusions between a 21 and a D group (54.2%) or a G group (40.9%) chromosome. Since the short arm of 21 carries no phenotypically active genes, even if the short arm of 21 is lost, usually there is...
A Case of Congenital Pulmonary Lymphangiectasia in Noonan Syndrome
Dong Hee Lee, Won Bae Kim, Jung Hye Choi, Su Nam Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(6):877-882.   Published online June 15, 1997
Congenital pulmonary lymphangiectasia is a rare and perphaps underestimated cause of fatal respiratory distress in the neonate or infant. Pathologically, this condition is characterized by wide lymphatic channels in the subpleural and peribronchovascular spaces and the interlobular septa. Noonan syndrome is characterized by a phenotype similar to Turner syndrome but with a normal karyotype. Both pulmonary and intestinal lymphangiectasia have been reported in patients...
